refereed many- amateur and profes

The battling Roumanian is stepping

Stanley Willis, lightweight champion
of Pennsylvania, is working at the
Cornfoot Shipyards and training hard
every night for his six-round contest

in the special event. Mitchie is also

The other bouts on the card are Joe
Swain, of Seattle, vs. Pat Bradley, of
St. Paul, 158 pounds, and Ted Hoke vs.
Joe Hoff, 125 pounds. One other bout
may be added to the card.
Every boxer on the card to be pre
sented Wednesday night, except the
two main eventers. is a hard-working
man, and all are doing their training
at the Rose City gym at night. The
boys start working at about 7:30 and
the public is admitted. Alex Trambitas

immy Darcy is an ironworker by

plant here before he left for California
tling, during ihich each of the two 1
men had one fall, and a third fall was
left uncompleted because of signed ar
ticles which prtvided for a decision at
i the end of two 'hours and one-half of
actual wrestling.
Speed and science won over beef, and
Caddock was clearly entitled to his
The fall obtained by Zbyszko was a
freak and came after Caddock had
clearly demonstrated his superiority
over the big Pol.
The Iowa wrestler, who is a private
at Camp Dodge,' the National Army
cantonment near here, weighed 40
pounds less than his rival and
a stripling in comparison with his' op
ponent rhen the two went upon the
Caddock was behind nine times dur
ing this fall for a total of 30 minutes
of time, while Zbyszko got behind
seven times and stayed there only 19
minutes all told.
Caddock, however, outwrestled Zbys
sko from the start. After bulling about
the mat , for nine minutes, Caddock
went behind, and although Zbyszko
managed to assume the offensive on
several occasions by use of main
strength, he was unable to gain any
extensive advantage at any time during
the first fall.
The second fall seemed a cinch for
Caddook, who had the Pole bewildered
until the latter, in an effort to break a
dangerous body scissors, rose to bis
feet and toppled over backward. Cad
dock was caught squarely beneath the
uu-pound bulk of his adversary and
was knocked out for 10 minutes
Zzyszko didn't even have to nin his
shoulders to the mat, for Caddock was
unable to turn over.
After 15 minutes' rest, howevee r,H.
dock was on the lob when time wn
called for the third fall, and held his
own until the time limit expired.
The match was witnessed by a crowd
of 6500, all that the bipgest building

ceipts were estimated at J51 (inn Manir
of those in attendance were fellow sol

the Iowa man was probably entitled to

March 21. (Special.) The contention
of Oregon Agricultural College that a
controversy exists between the Uni
versity of Oregon and the -Aggies over
the outcome of the recent .wrestling
meet between the two schols. is entire
ly without foundation,, according to
Graduate Manager Tiffany, who points
out that it takes two parties to make
a controversy and that so far aa Ore
gon is concerned the meet inquestion
is a thing or tne past.
The first intimation that the Aggies
were dissatisfied with the outcome in
any way, except that they lost, was the
appearance in the Corvallis student
paper of a statement that the Black
and Gold lost because of unfair deci

Interscholastic Directors Order New
Basketball Schedule.
The directors of the Portland Inter
scholastic Athletic Association, who
are the principals of the high schools,
held a meeting at Multnomah Amateur
Athletic Club yesterday afternoon and
rejected the interscholastic baseball
schedule drawn up by the coaches last
week, which calls for each school to
play each other school twice. The
principals are not in favor of the two
game idea.
President S. F. Ball, of tho Inter
scholastic Association, will call a meet
ing of the coaches again this week and
instruct them to draw up a schedule
calling for each school playing each
other school once,' the same as in
basketball. Nothing else of importance
was brought up at yesterday's meet
ing and another meeting has-' been
called for next week. The coaches will
probably get together today or tomor
row and draw up a new schedule. .

SYRACUSE, N. Y.. March 10. Syracuse
University basketball authorities have
made their annual bid for a berth in
the Intercollegiate Basketball League
following the yearly clean-up of prac
tically all the teams comDrisinsr the
The Salt City players, coached bv
Edmund A. Dollard. a former star bas-
keter and athlete, asks for cntra nee
nto the elite circle, an annual reouest
by the way. It would seem to the Ini
tiated that Syracuse has good crrounds
for being ranked among the best bas
ketball teams in tho country, for under
Dollard the team has won 65 out of 77
games in six years.
Until this season Dollard has had
ittle publicity. He is being ranked,
owever, as the Gilmour Dobie of bas
ketball on account of his ability to
produce winning teams.
Those who consider basketball as a
game favoring the home team must
realize that half of the Syracuse games
ave oeen played on foreign courts
nd that it has been the ability of the
earns, rather than the familiarity with
the home floor, that has given Dollard's
teams the edge.
Lp-state they 'consider Syracuse as
almost unbeatable. Ever since the davs
of "Shorty" Powell, back in 1905, Syra
cuse has been a power in basketball.
Some six years ago Syracuse made a
bid for a berth in the Interscholastic
The circuit was composed of Yale,
Princeton, Cornel, Pennsylvania, Co
lumbia and Dartmouth. The schedule
admitted of ten games played by each
team. Denied a berth in the league.
Syracuse went through the formality of
applying, only to be rejected. Since
then Syracuse has won Umost every
time it started against league teams,
in games either at Syracuse or in the
gymnasiums of the league fives.
In 1909 Pennsylvania defeated Syra
cuse in basketball. It was then that
Penn was the titleholder in the Inter
collegiate League. This year, with Penn
conceded the title, Syracuse .visited
Philadelphia and broke Venn's winning
streak of eight games, defeating the
Red and Blue in Weightman Hall by 27
to 24.
Yale, Columbia and Dartmouth have
been repeatedly beaten by Dollard's
teams, and the rumor that Dartmouth
is to drop out of the circuit next year
gives Syracuse a chance to enter the
fold. If the Salt City lads are wel
comed it is almost a foregone conclu-'
sion that Edmund Dollard, a former
Syracuse athlete and present coach, will
put the finishing touches on a real in
tercollegiate title.
To have lost but 12 games in six
years, or an average of but two a sea
son, is a great record, and one entitled
to give Dollard a look-in as one of the
real basketball coaches of the floor
